Day 3 and I'm in a right pissy mood

I've low carbed before and don't remember being in such a horrible mood! Am wondering if it's because my diet has been particularly bad and very carb heavy for the last 3 months that my body is in shock!

Constantly need a pee too hmm

Me too - although only day two.

I'm hungry (don't care what anyone says about not getting hungry on LC I definitely do) and that always puts me in a pissy mood.

Hope you're day gets better

Hmm haven't been to hungry but I have just eaten a whole tub of olives to myself and I'm drinking lots of black coffee which probably isn't helping.

What I would give to have a two big bowls of honey nut cornflakes! Cereal is my downfall

If you have been a bit of a carb fiend recently, then it could well be this! Remember that the withdrawal from carbs can take a few days to get through.

And PP - if you're hungry when you're low carbing then:

- you're not keeping your carbs low enough


- you're not drinking enough water


- you're not eating enough fat

Oh - and remember - this WOE isn't about deprivation. If you're hungry, then you should eat! As long as it's low carb, then you'll be fine.

I know this - it's not proper hunger, a craving for wet food - oranges etc.

Could you eat a grapefruit ?

I've got to get back into low carb..just can't find the key to the door at the mo...

Oxford I had massive citrus and apple cravings for the first ten days - PP suggested I try celery and cucumber instead, and they fit the crunchy/wet thing enough for me to get past them. Obviously, it's not the same taste etc - but somehow, it worked.

Ah that's good - thanks. I completely get that wet & crunchy craving !
